If you need wisdom – if you want to know what God wants you to do – ask him, and he will gladly tell you. He will not resent your asking. But when you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled as a wave of the sea
that is driven and tossed by the wind.
(James 1:5-6 NLT)
All truly wise decisions are rooted in a vital faith in God. Faith is “the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.” (Hebrews 11:1 NLT)
When we ask God to help us make a wise decision, we can make the request without any doubt, having complete faith that whatever we ask for will be granted. God will provide us the wisdom to make the right decision. The key element is having complete faith in God to lead us in our decision process.
As we trust God to give us wisdom for today's decisions, He will lead us a step at a time into what He wants us to be doing in the future.
